Comme des Garcons starts a new fashion brand named Noir Kei Ninomiya designed by Kei Ninomiya.

The brand began with its 2013SS season and in Japan, its designs are only available at Omotesando Tokyo’s Trading Museum Comme des Garcons. Overseas, the brand’s designs will be available (planned) at Trading Museum Comme des Garcons in Paris and Dover Street Market Comme des Garcons in London.

After Ninomiya graduated from Aoyama Gakuin University, he attended the Royal Academy of Fine Arts (Antwerp) and joined Comme des Garcons in September 2008. He started off as a pattern maker for the brand. In October 2012 he became the designer for the new line Noir Kei Ninomiya. As seen in the name, the brand creates designs centered on the color “black”.
